The Stone Alone didn't cut all ties with his famous friends when he took a hike from the Rolling Stones. Indeed, Anyway the Wind Blows's star-studded cast includes fellow Stones alumni Mick Taylor, Eric Clapton, Albert Lee, and Chris Rea. And those are just the guitarists! The big names are along to bring some flash to Wyman's apparently fluid regular crew, which includes Georgie Fame, Beverley Skeete, and Geoff Grange on vocals. The lot of 'em tackle a handful of Wyman originals and an informed collection of blues-based covers, including tunes from Willie Dixon, Nellie Lutchor, and J.J. Cale. The result is an expertly played collection with the feel of a jam session at an upscale pub. --Steven Stolder

"Considering some of the talent here, this album is so laid-back it barely registers. It's slick, it's polished, but there's not a lot of soul here. Mick Taylor is barely audible, Clapton's been far bluesier elsewhere, and the vocals don't have a lot of passion. For a Wyman project that rocks, check out Willy and the Poorboys, with Jimmy Page, Paul Rodgers, Chris Rea, and a lot livelier supporting cast. This was a nice idea, but it's too much of a misfire to justify spending full price on."
I love this CD.

"I first heard a couple of cuts from this CD while shopping in a (brick-and-mortar) bookstore, and it had me practically dancing in the aisles. I went home and sampled some more cuts online through Amazon and ordered it. Bill and his friends have produced an album that not only sounds like they're having a great time, but makes you feel like you're in on it too."
Rhythm Kings hit stride!

"What an improvement over the first release! Bill sticks with Georgie Fame and Bev Skeete on a majority of the vocals. The choice of covers is, again, excellent! The accompanying musicians reads like a who's who of British rock. This is a fun, fun CD! Can't wait for the final installment of this great trilogy!"
